Last year was our first walk we ever attended, and this is how many of us "Sisters" there were (well our babies anyway!):
That's it. We knew four other families, and met Grace (far left) and her family for the first time at the walk last year.
And now? We have over 30 families in our Sisterhood... and I couldn't even get a picture our group was so big and scattered!
But here's what I did capture... FYI, the pics aren't very good this year - my camera is on the fritz and I was working the event so I barely spent time with my team, a mistake I won't make again next year :)
First, I have to share the DSIA walk t-shirt design (a big thank you to designer Carrie Dennis who made my vision for a great t-shirt come alive!):
Sacramento Fire Department came out to support our community, and Sheridan was thrilled with the fire trucks (especially those HUGE shiny wheels).
We started in the middle of the pack (you can easily spot Team Gabalicious in their orange and purple get-ups).
See those balloons? Those belong to a few Sister families who formed the Sisterhood team (some of us did our own teams, some joined as one huge consolidated team - it was awesome!).
And a Playette sighting!!!! All tutu-ed out!!!!
The littlest walker on our team :)
The coolest thing... this was Sheridan's first year he walked the walk.
And look who else walked her first walk! Grace!
And I do mean that she *literally* walked the whole walk.
She lasted about 5 seconds in Sheridan's stroller before she insisted on walking again.
Sheridan walked maybe a third of the walk (on and off throughout the whole mile), but he was just as happy riding on Nonna's shoulders.
And he was eager to help Wes push his baby sister.
All in all it was a great walk. We raised money for an excellent organization that does so much to support the Ds community here. And we were thrilled to have so many friends and family (37!) come out to support Sheridan (and the entire community!) again...
Thank you to team GENETICALLY ENHANCED!
P.S. you know those babies I showed you from last year? FIVE of them walked the walk this year for the first time :) - and the youngest is on his way to walk-hood :)
